Asakura Robinson provided landscape architectural services from schematic design
through construction observation for the corporate headquarters of Citation Oil and Gas
Corp., which was completed in Spring 2009. The design focused on tree preservation
and sustainable landscape elements. Understory plantings of native shrubs, grasses,
and perennials complement the naturalistic setting. Native prairie grasses were installed
in peripheral areas, reducing the need for frequent mowing and maintenance and
providing wildlife habitat.
Detention areas also received plantings of native trees, shrubs, and perennials to
improve stormwater quality and promote infiltration. The use of native plant material
throughout the site reduces the amount of water needed for irrigation, again providing
the client with cost savings while also benefitting the environment.
